But when he’s thrown out of his clan and left to fend for himself he becomes lost in the world.While searching for a new clan to belong to he comes across Donovan, a powerful dragon unlike any he’s ever met.

Donovan doesn’t allow whores in his clan because to him everyone should be equal, but convincing Avery that he’s worth more than what he’s always been told he is turns out to be a frustrating task for both of them. Avery doesn’t want to be a whore anymore, but he has never known anything else, and Donovan refuses to treat him like that.

They’ll have to heal the scars of Avery’s past abuse if they hope to ever have a future together.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: To me there is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men. They always just make the day better. You don’t read many that involve dragons and I have to say that dragons will always be my favorite. This is the first book to a series that I hope makes my top ten favorites.

Avery is an ice dragon who was kicked out of his clan because they had no future use of him. He was the clan whore and knew no better. He was at the bottom of the chain and had to get away. He flew into or I should say he crash landed into another’s territory. One whose leader was not like his old clan at all. Donovan had a lot of work to do to show Avery the good side.

Now it was way too short to give me more than just a taste and left me wanting more. Also it came off very rushed to me with not enough span in between getting there, figuring out certain things and then sex again. It just came off a bit strange and did not flow as well as it should have.

Overall though I had fun with it and look forward to reading the next story. Give me dragons any day.

Blurb: Lex’s life as a Watcher is about to get a lot more complicated when he decides to take on an apprentice, and her protective single father.

As the Watcher for the Northeast, Lex loves lobster, being in the woods, and sex. That last part, though, he keeps hidden from the other Watchers, because they’re supposed to be above those kinds of desires. He gets his fill of men from the local shifter clubs whenever he’s out doing his Watcher duties, and this one is no different. A hot guy, a night of fast sex, and he’s out the door again without anyone knowing more than his name.

But this time it is different, because that one night hook-up is Tucker, and his daughter is Lex’s first apprentice. Addie is headstrong, demanding, and more than Lex can handle. He never thought a seven-year old little girl would be a match for him, but she is, and worse than that is how her father drives Lex nuts one minute and makes him think about the impossibilities of forever in the next.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Watchers collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I think the idea of someone watching over others is the perfect idea. I wished it was true and could help those who needed it.

There are five watchers of different animal souls and they watch over other paranormals. Lex is a caracal shifter whose life is about to go crazy. He has found a new watcher and a very protective father. A father he had sex with the night before, can things get any crazier. It would seem that her father is his mate. Tucker however is not sure of anything but he knows he will protect his daughter at all cost.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. To me there is nothing better than a good romance, but when it is a paranormal then it hits higher marks to me.

This story was a lot better than the others but I still wished they were a bit longer. Because no matter if you have read them all, they just seem to leave something important out. The problem is I just can’t figure out what it is missing.

Over all though it doesn’t take away from the story and I enjoyed it.

Blurb: Two men. One wants to retain control. One wishes to share what it feels like to let go.

Kaiser of Pratt prides himself on his ability to do his duty. Being part of the black caste of dragons, he has performed tasks that range from infiltrating a clan’s inner circle, to escort duty, to acting as a herald for his people. He’s willing to use every weapon in his arsenal to get a job done, including his body.

While visiting Clan MacDuffan, Kaiser catches the scent of the human Seumas Maxton. While he recognizes Seumas as an asda—a human able to bond with a dragon—he’s met asdas before and has always been able to resist the allure of their scent. This time, Kaiser finds his thoughts consumed by Seumas.

Knowing the human has valuable information, Kaiser thinks a fun romp with him might be just the thing to glean what he needs and scratch his itch. Except Seumas somehow knows he’s already bedded another.

What must he do to convince the human of the pleasure they could have together?

Kaiser is a beautiful black dragon who is called a herald. He does everything he can to learn about others for his leader. It might have gotten him into a bit of trouble, but it leads him to Seumas. Seumas had been ill for a long time, but now he doesn’t have the strength to be what he was born to be.

However it would seem he has a better place to be. He makes maps for his leader, but now he must trust Kaiser. Then the shock of all it turns out to be that Kaiser is a dragon shifter and he is his asada. Things are going to be looking up for Seumas.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

Blurb: Sometimes the secrets we keep aren’t as unacceptable as we thought they were.

Wes has been on his own since he was sixteen, and he’s had to do what he needed to do to survive, even if it meant being a prostitute. He’s never known love, but that starts to change when he meets Taylor. Wes feels wanted as a person for the first time, but he knows Taylor could never accept him, so he flees.

Taylor hadn’t expected to wake up alone on the day after he claimed his mate. He doesn’t even know Wes’ full name or phone number, so he has no way to find him. Just when he thinks he’s lost Wes forever, Wes is attacked and calls a pride member for help. Taylor knows he has to tell Wes about his furry half, but after Wes ran once already, Taylor is scared of his mate’s reaction.

Wes accepts staying with the pride, but can Taylor really accept him and his past? And can Wes get used to living with people—with shifters—when he’s been alone for three years?

Wes had been kicked out of his home at the age of sixteen, so he did what he had to to survive. He was ashamed of having to sell his body but he needed rent and food. Three years later and he wished he knew how to end it. He just wanted to be loved. For the first time he felt like he was truly wanted when he met a sexy man at the club.

After leaving him, he is attacked at the club and called the only one person who he thought would help him. He did not know it would lead him back to the one man who acted like he cared. To his shock he finds himself with a mate.

Taylor always wanted a mate so while at the club he decides to get wasted. He ends up meeting his mate, sexing him up and then falling asleep. He didn’t even get the guys full name and has no idea how to find him. Then he finds out Wes has been hurt and is now at the pride compound. He just has to get the courage up to tell him about shifters and mates. It looks to me like these two are going to be hot.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.

Jayden has done his best to forget the first part of his life, the part that happened before he arrived in Whitedell. He’s managed pretty well—he has friends, a job, and he even meets his mate. And who cares if said mate stays in his bear form even after Jayden stumbled on him in the woods surrounding the mansion?

Heath doesn’t know who he is or what happened to him. He can’t remember anything prior to meeting Jayden, and he longs to know his past. Luckily for him, his parents are looking for him, and it takes only a few days for them to meet.

Jayden and Heath have been doing well, slowly getting to know each other, but when Heath meets his family again, he discovers he already has a boyfriend. On top of that, Jayden’s brother suddenly resurfaces, and the mysterious hunters strike again.

Will Jayden lose Heath almost before even having him?

Jayden had found his mate a few nights ago and had never told anyone. He would sneak out to see his bear. He didn’t know the reason his mate couldn’t change but he wanted to be near him. That is until Shad tried to sneak out himself, and Jayden feared for everyone’s safety.

Heath had no knowledge of who he was, where he was from or how long he had been in bear form. He feared the answers, but he knew he wanted his mate. There were many questions unanswered but they both wanted each other.

Then there is also Jayden’s little brother needing to be rescued and the hunters were back to their old tricks. The pride was in danger and they needed to watch out.

I love the way this author can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Catherine.

Hector is fresh out of a cage for the first time in his memory. Learning about the world is exciting and scary, and he looks forward to experiencing life. While out having fun with his flock-mates, Hector runs across a human, Rocky, who smells amazing and makes his Scops owl flutter wildly inside his mind.

Except, the guy turns down his request to dance. He learns later that Rocky is a bouncer, so he’s at the bar working. Wanting to catch him either before or after his shift, Hector begins to regularly frequent the club. Unfortunately, that earns him the reputation of being a party-boy, which causes Rocky to keep his distance. The human claims he has responsibilities which a partier wouldn’t understand.

How can Hector, so new to freedom, convince Rocky that he can handle responsibility when the human won’t even tell him what it is?

There is a lot of action, danger, suspense and a bit of kink in this book. I love how it has that serious tone to it but there is so much humor in it that your attention is captivated throughout it all. I have got to say that owls are just so cute. I loved the cover and that was what caught my attention first. Although to be honest any book that Charlie writes is automatically bought by me. I just can’t seem to get enough of her stories.

Hector and his friends are bird shifters and have spent most of their lives in cages. Hector doesn’t even remember what it was like to be a child. Now that they have been freed, he is trying to learn as much as he can. He has found his mate, but every time he asks him to date, Rocky turns him down.

Rocky has his eyes on Hector but doesn’t want a one night stand. He has a small child to think of and he doesn’t want to bring someone in just to get hurt. However he decides to give the little man a date to see. Let’s just say his eyes are about to be opened wide. He is mated to a cute little owl shifter whose heart is out there for anyone to see.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

When Charlie puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Blurb: Bears and otters don’t mix. Everyone knows this and they generally steer clear of each other. But for Phillip and Zeke, those rules stopped mattering the second they met.

As the son of the bear clan leader, Zeke’s purpose is to take the mate his father has decided for him and bring the Washington clans together. He has a better idea though, one that involves seducing a sexy otter and running away with him instead of doing what his family expects of him.

But things aren’t easy between Phillip and Zeke and with the bears hunting them, and Aedan and Brody. it seems all they ever do is argue. When Zeke finally has enough of it and decides to go back home, secrets that he’s been keeping from Phillip spill out and Phillip turns his back on him. Zeke understands and knows it’s what he deserves.

Phillip is glad to be rid of the lying bear, however when he sees Zeke alone and miserable at the same bar where they met, and he finds out what has become of Zeke since he went back to his family, Phillip can’t just step aside. They may not always get along, but Phillip can’t watch Zeke suffer either.

He’ll need a miracle to fix the mess they’re in, but if he can convince Zeke to try then maybe love won’t be so impossible after all.

Although I would suggest reading the Watcher’s series also because there are crossover characters from there also.

Phillip met Zeke at the bar on his night alone. They ran away with some other otters when Zeke’s clan came after them. Then Phillip finds out that Zeke had been lying the whole time, but when he found out that Zeke’s mate was hurting him he knew he had to help.
Caitlin Ricci and A.J. Marcus are a great team and can give you some pretty amazing stories to read. But, not only are they to short but they come off very rushed and shallow.

You go from their meeting to them running away from the clan. It had a lot of holes in it and I was quite disappointed in the whole story. Well not the whole story, it was a great idea but the follow through was not good. I liked the otter and bear part, but really the bear comes off extremely weak.

I do hope that the next story has some meat to it and more details.

Demi was a Steduna demon. Basically his powers were for plants which made his job perfect. He loved to garden, that is until his ex-boyfriend started causing trouble. After the last time, he had decided it was time to leave. His best friend Noah was the perfect one to help him. He had not expected to find his sexy mate there.

Reed had been one of those that had been captured and experimented on. He was having nightmares and jumped at the slightest noise. He was always having mood swings, so he feared his mate would run after he found out. These two are perfect for each other and damn they are hot. Now all they have to do is to get the damn ex to leave them alone.

However it was lacking something major to really love it.

I look forward to seeing what the next story will be like.

Pitney is a shy young man who self-esteem is very low. His one relationship, which wasn’t a real relationship, left him a bit scared. So when Rafe saves him from his ex he is blown away. He had been staring at this gorgeous man since he started coming to the restaurant. Not only that but it looks like Rafe is way interested in him. So things are about to heat up.

This is the first story by Liza that I have read and I have to tell you that I will be reading more of her stories. There is just something about them that calls to you and has you spell bound. Each man has issues it seems with their sexuality but together they are determined to be together.

This is a short and very sweet little love story that I had a lot of fun reading. I would love to hear more about them in the future. The story line was perfect and the characters were well written and fully developed.

This was a blast and I would definitely recommend it.
